Tom and Mark Jacobsen are our coaching providers for Montpellier & Pittville tennis courts, supported by the Lawn Tennis Association & East Gloucestershire Tennis Club. Professional, friendly and fully qualified, they can help all abilities and all ages to get into the game. If you’ve not played in a while or are looking to improve, there will be lessons for you to try. They have even convinced us to try cardio tennis, which we loved! There are lots of opportunities to pick up a racket, and even junior tennis camps in school holidays, so have a look and get involved.


Park Tennis League

If you would you like to play more singles or are looking for new people to play, the Cheltenham Parks Tennis League is a great way to play friendly, competitive singles and improve your game.

Players are organised into groups of a similar level and arrange their own matches at a mutually convenient time over 8 weeks.
